Scale Model Making
Of all things that you can put in a sales suite, a scale model
is still the first thing to catch a buyer/visitor's eye. Archiform
3D, a leader in marketing materials for real estate property development,
has branched into model making to compliment it's extensive digital
media offerings. Now our clients can issue just one set of briefing
documents to get their physical models, 3D renderings and animations
together. These products are so tightly integrated and so similar
in requirements that the integration of these services into the
Archiform 3D production line was inevitable.
Recreating the finished project in miniature scale, physical models
are mainly seen as representations for new building and boat designs.
Architectural scale models is our main focus with our already extensive
clientele base and immediate need.
Building models, is an extremely labor intensive process, even
more so than our 3D models. Each piece is made partially by hand
and machine, with mistakes often meaning waste and re-milling.
This all means that the cost of a physical scale model is more
expensive than a 3D virtual one.
To compare to our history of 3D CGI models, a change in 3D may
take an hour, whereas one to a physical scale model may take a
day or more.
Samples of our scale models
Our growing portfolio of work will go online as quickly as we
can get it there and will include multiple pictures showing various
facets and details.

Scale models for architecture have been in existence for years,
and while the core techniques remain the same, subtle differences
in construction materials, lighting, resins and tools have improved
the finished results while reducing lead times.
Improvements have meant better and more realistic trees, water
and props such as cars and people.
Architectural Model Makers
Architectural models have their own special techniques and a mandatory
expectation of high-quality. Residing mainly in sales suites, these
models are scrutinized and admired by most that walk through the
doors. In the eyes of the buyer the quality of the product is a
direct reflection of the model.
